You might not have participated in a bid but still might want to know who won the tender. This only works for certain public sector contracts that were advertised on one of the tender websites but it is very simple to do.
1. Log onto the relevant website where the opportunity was advertised eg South East Business Portal, TED etc.
2. Search for contracts awarded to find out who won.
You may then want to use this info to contact the winner to see if you can supply them. Alternatively you may find some useful (and often hard to get) contact names on the contract documents that might help you with future relationship building.
Sadly, there is no such system for the private sector and it doesn’t work on smaller public sector contracts – you need to rely on old fashioned sales and research.
Anyone else have any other useful tips on finding out who won the tender?
